From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet and The FastDiet comes a new revolution in fitness. Lose weight and dramatically improve your health with high intensity training—just ten minutes a day, three times a week.

Hailed as “a health revolution” by the New York Times, Michael Mosley’s FastDiet—also known as the 5:2 diet—gave the world a healthy new way to lose weight through intermittent fasting. Now, Dr. Mosley addresses the essential complement to the FastDietFastExercise—teaming up with leading sports scientist Professor Jamie Timmons and super-fit health journalist Peta Bee to turn conventional wisdom on its head when it comes to working out. Responding to the latest research on high-intensity training (HIT), FastExercise dispenses with the practice of boring, time-consuming regimens, demonstrating that all it takes is half an hour a week to lower blood glucose levels, reduce your risk for disease, help you lose weight, and maximize your overall health.

Throughout the book, the authors offer a range of workouts that take just ten minutes a day, three times a week, and can be done anytime, anywhere. Whether it’s pedaling at high resistance while waiting for your kettle to boil or holding a plank during commercials, research has shown the extraordinary impact that ultra-short bursts of HIT can have, whatever your age or level of fitness.

In addition, Michael Mosley and Peta Bee break down the science behind this radically different approach to exercise and give you the tools to take advantage of the most flexible and efficient method out there. It’s a practical, enjoyable way to get maximal benefits in minimal time, short and fast, something that can become a sustainable part of your routine, as instinctive as brushing your teeth.

Get into the fight—the fight against fat!

The U.S. Marine drill instructor who has inspired millions through the massively popular TV show, Celebrity Fit Club, reveals his star-studded formula for lifelong health and fitness. Countless marines have trained with Drill Instructor Walden—and now you can too.

Harvey offers a workout so simple, you can do it watching your favorite TV show, and so effective, it will change your life. In Harvey Walden's NO EXCUSES! Fitness Workout, he becomes your personal drill instructor for a platoon of one—YOU!

All he asks is that you give him half an hour a day, four days a week, to develop a new body, a new attitude—and a new you.

The tough marine from Chicago's South Side tells of his own personal challenges and the lessons he's learned. He will teach you how to get beyond your excuses and meet the challenge of getting fit. Harvey knows all about excuses—from rookie marines to Hollywood celebrities, he's seen every trick in the book. He knows just how hard people will try to AVOID getting fit.

But he also knows that if you get off your butt, leave behind that sugary, salty, snacky food you've been chewing on, and follow his recipe for exercise success, you'll turn your life around. He knows because he's done it. And you can do it too!

In this book, he sets out a complete three-stage fitness plan for YOU:
Stage One: Get OFF Your Butt.
Stage Two: Now You Are in the Fight.
Stage Three: OOH RAH! You're a Stud (or Studette)!

With thirty-minute workouts for each level of fitness that keep you in motion while taking you through warm-up, cardio, strength training, and cool-down, each stage will hone and tone your body, introducing new challenges as you get fitter.

A bonus gym section can take you further still. And Harvey gives his very own personal advice at every stage.

So—No Excuses! It's time to get in the fight.

This is your brain on Grant Petersen: Every comfortable assumption you have about a subject is turned upside down, and by the time you finish reading you feel challenged, energized, and smarter. In Just Ride—“the bible for bicycle riders” (Dave Eggers, New York Times Book Review)—Petersen debunked the bicycle racing– industrial complex and led readers back to the simple joys of getting on a bike.

In Eat Bacon, Don’t Jog, Petersen upends the last 30 years of conventional health wisdom to offer a clear path to weight loss and fitness. In more than 100 short, compelling directives, Eat Bacon, Don’t Jog shows why we should drop the carbs, embrace fat, and hang up our running shoes, with the latest science to back up its claims.

Diet and Exercise make up the bulk of the book, with food addressed in essays such as “Carbohydrate Primer”—and why it’s okay to eat less kale—and “You’ll Eat Less Often If You Eat More Fat.” The exercise chapters begin with “Don’t Jog” (it just makes you hungry and trains muscle to tolerate more jogging while raising stressors like cortisol) and lead to a series of interval-training exercises and a suite of kettlebell lifts that greatly enhance strength and endurance.

The balance of the book explains the science of nutrition and includes more than a dozen simple and delicious carb-free recipes.

Thirty years ago Grant Petersen was an oat-bran-, egg-white-, lean-meat-eating exercise fanatic who wasn’t in great shape despite all that. Today, at sixty, he is in the best shape of his life with the blood panel to prove it.
The indispensable companion to the #1 New York Times bestselling diet book


The FastDiet became an instant international bestseller with a powerful, life-changing message: that it’s possible to lose weight, reduce your risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer, all while eating what you normally eat five days a week. You simply cut your caloric intake two days a week—500 calories for women, 600 for men. But as author Dr. Michael Mosely said, "It’s not really fasting. It’s just a break from your normal routine."

This fabulous new cookbook offers over 150 carefully crafted, nutritious, low-calorie recipes to enable you to incorporate the FastDiet into your daily life. Ranging from simple breakfasts to leisurely suppers, the recipes are all expertly balanced and calorie-counted by FastDiet co-author Mimi Spencer (a devotee of the diet herself!) and nutritionist Dr. Sarah Schenker. From soups to meat dishes to delicious fish-based meals, the recipes designed to fill you up and stave off hunger—even though none are over 500 calories. There are also detailed menu plans and plenty of encouraging tips, including kitchen-cupboard essentials, the latest nutritional advice and a whole section of speedy meals for busy days.

With an introduction to the diet itself—detailing its many scientifically-backed health benefits and the transformative results it’s already given to hundreds of thousands of readers—this book is an essential follow-up companion guide to The FastDiet. With The FastDiet Cookbook you will never have to worry about planning your Fast Days again!
From #1 New York Times bestselling author of The FastDiet and The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet, a groundbreaking book about your gut—the “second brain” of the body—and “the life-changing new plan that’ll make you healthier, happier, and slimmer” (Daily Mail).

Your gut is astonishingly clever. It contains millions of neurons and is home to the microbiome, an army of tiny organisms that influence your mood, your immune system, and even your appetite.

In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Mosley takes us on a revelatory journey through the gut, showing how junk food and overuse of antibiotics have wiped out many “good” gut bacteria leading to a modern plague of allergies, food intolerances, and obesity. Drawing from the latest cutting-edge research, Dr. Mosley provides scientifically proven ways to control your cravings, boost your mood, and lose weight by feeding the “good” bacteria that keep you healthy and lean, while staving off “bad” bacteria that contribute to weight gain and disease.

Dr. Mosley also shares a simple two-phase healing program, an effective way to repair and replenish the microbiome and to ease intestinal distress. Discover how foods like chocolate, red wine, and cheese can be part of a gut-healthy diet; how fasting can strengthen the gut and boost “good” bacteria; how changing your microbiome can undo the damage of yo-yo dieting; and how opening a window (and other simple acts) can improve gut health.

Packed with delicious, healing recipes, meal plans, checklists, and helpful tips, The Clever Gut Diet includes all the tools you need to transform your gut and your health for the rest of your life.
